About giclée prints
Giclée printing is a recent introduction and is making a strong impact on the British print market.
The giclée process starts in the same way as off-set litho in that the original drawing is scanned using a very high definition laser scanner but instead of making plates the information is fed into a computer and the image is printed using a very high quality, large format, inkjet printer called an iris printer - hence the name giclée which is French for 'to squirt'.
New non-fading archival inks combined with the ability to print onto acid free, hot pressed watercolour paper similar to the paper Ann uses for the original drawings produces a superb quality print virtually indistinguishable from the original.
The prints come in deep cut single museum quality off white mounts or double white mount and are shrink wrapped for protection.
Larger prints are backed with foam core board for safe transport. Measurements include mounts.
All Limited Edition Prints are signed and numbered by the artist.
